If it hadn’t been for my girlfriends this would have never happened:
It took a LOT of loving hands to make all of those rosettes!
Robbie, Peggy, Cheryl and Crystal literally saved my life – and my fingers – and we had a wonderful time doing it (ok, mostly – it was a little bit insane). Once the rosettes were made it was pretty simple: a doily from the Petite Pennants Bigz die, a flower trimmed from the 5/8 inch Flower Trim, some Pear Pizazz Seam Binding (a Clearance Rack SCORE!), Hemp Twine (also from the Rack) and Linen Thread.
These favor jars were filled with an amazing seasoning salt made here on Maui by a dear, wonderful woman named Iris Nitta. Carol knew her from her Baldwin High School days, and when Carol graduated from college she worked on Maui with Iris’s son-in-law for a while. He brought the season salt to his co-workers as a Christmas gift that year, and when it was time to find something for the favors Carol knew exactly what she wanted. Iris made up a special batch for us and for a few days my car – and my house – smelled divinely as nearly 40 pounds of salt waited to be put into jars! All the loving hands that participated in this wedding made every aspect so special.
I’m really glad Carol and Clarence decided to keep the guest list under 100 guests.
